Let the voting begin. Poll expires sometime January first when I'm able to pick my swollen head up off the pillow.

How the 'H' did I get in there?????
I told Stroker Stoker Scotty I was only kidding...most of the time anyway, so did he do this to me?
Hey there Stroker....I told someone 'Malta' was a place over in the Middle Easy where "Sheikdom Special Reserve Gold" comes from. Please help out here...where is Malta, really?!? Goggle it and it shows above Albany, however the heat plumes from the abundant hot air there gives me no clarity...sooooo I'm going with the "Sheikdom" thingy for right now!
Smitty was picked up in Downtown Fitchburg, MA last night looking for the 'Sheikdom Micro-Brewery', and I feel a real responsibility, for even mentioning it.....he did have his shoes on, and a seat belt properly affixed. though! Extensive Physical therapy has now allowed him to wave with more than one finger raised...so some good is coming from the past events...

It's like Sat Nite Live...it's only light heart-ed humor, mostly at my own expense.....and yes, I'm passionate about freedom of expression in coal burning; (politics. religion, abortion, no so much).....but whatever concentration percentage of Magnatite floats the fines from your anthracite..... :woot:

The real story is of our coal burning history, is just not being taught anymore....all they talk about is an old strip mine left vacant for a hundred years...and the decay.....(not going political here...I promised myself....)
Without coal, This country would not have been able to prosper and succeed as quickly and effectively as it has. It isn't over yet, but the old approach to "Mainstream Coals Acceptance" sure is! Education, my friends, is the only way to help resolve the stigma.

I agree with Smitty...when he's sober. that everyone is the winner when coal is being used effectively, in a cost effective way. 37 years playing with the black rocks, over 1000 tons burned......(no Smitty, it's not like havin' a 1000 keg beer belly) :rofl: :hammer: This AIN'T my first Rodeo! No, I don't shave my legs, either........ AND if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, swims like a duck...and has 14 cute little ducklings swimming behind it. It is DAMNED sure a DUCK! If that bit of reality offends you, GREAT! Devil is gone....I'm happy!
How many 50 year old pellet stoves do you think we will still have?
Make it here in America, Buy it here in America, Keep the funds derived from it right here in America, Make and keep the jobs right here in America! Nuff said!! :taz:

Not quite done.....Sting, where do you come up with the 'coolest' avatar selections. Man, they make me smile all day long....very cool stuff!
Also Sting, thanks for your comments, I sure appreciate your expertise. Tell me something one time. I get it!!

Sting. does the burning corn have a popcorn like smell....or just a neutral smell? I just bought a sweet little Harman Mark 1 from a fellow who never burned coal in it, just wood scraps from his shop. Pellet burner $3400.00
Corn Pellets at the grain store 345/ton.....I would need a' whoopie cushion' to ease the pain of that one....isn't there some law that protects you from that sort of abuse? Cost a certain church a few bucks......

:eek2: :wtf: bop2 :hammer: :alone: :bang: :woot: :notsure:

When straight corn is burnt in an appliance designed to do that -- the products of combustion smell more like burnt toast, rather than burnt pop corn. Straight wood pellets smell like any other wood fire. I have not been able to burn the waste paper pellets alone and sniff them - they bridge in my feed system as it it today.

When I burn a combination of these fuels the smell is "unique". A combination - a cornucopia - it sort of stinks! But the burn is hot and consistent, with fault tolerant idle fires. Funny story- the house next door is a rental and the neighbor just moved in - it was a calm dark foggy night last month - I should have switched over to NG but wasn't thinking about the smog alert. That boiler is on a 40 foot stack! Anyway, The neighbor called the fire dept thinking there was a gas leak and after inspection - the boys pointed to my power vent. ( its on that side of the house ) I got lucky - they packed up and went back to their beer at the fire house.

And yes I read folks in your area do not enjoy inexpensive corn fuel like we do in the mid west - Its all a give and take isn't it? I cannot enjoy the economically priced black rock that you do!
